I have an account for a guitarist in a metal band, and his wife is a porn star. I had her dvd"s before the account...I appreciate them even more now. It's pretty cool when the tour bus pulls up and everyones unloading while I'm there...even better when she comes out in a beater and no bra to ask me if I can trim the bushes, yes this is by far my favorite account. I still have the Christmas card they sent me out on display.

I used to mow the former Burt Reynold's mansion in Loganville-Mowed it for 4 years. My second cousin actually bought it directly from him in 85' and we ate lunch(With the rest of the family)right after he bought it. The women were still leaving scarfs on the iron gate because they thought he still lived there. There was a road sign with "Deliverance" still hanging in the carport. I got to tour the house with all of Burt's furnishings still in it-His room had a zebra skin rug at the foot of the bed and there was still the gaudy 70's wallpaper everywhere. The funny thing is that my cousin probably has more money than Burt will ever see-He is an invester and is like a monopoly guy-carpet factories in Dalton, computer factories in Japan, casino's in Las Vegas, owns numerous banks, etc. I always thought that was neat about the Burt Reynold's mansion-I was 15 and got to see things most people only dreamed of here in Loganville.:)

I figure most celebs that you are talking about have their own grounds crew and do not sub it out. But Im sure there are some celebs in the southern CA area that hire a lawn company, but not the big movie stars.

I actually sat next to the Undertaker (wwe wrestling) ona flight to florida a few years back... He asked me what i do and after I told him he proceeded to ask me about 500 questions to maintain his own properties with fert/weeds/mulch etc... Got a few phone pics, a free t-shirt signed by him as a "thanks" for my input and learned some very interesting facts about the wrestling world, does that count?

By the way, for all of you WWE fans... Not to let the cat out of the bag, but the Undertaker will NEVER lose a match at wrestlemania, its written in his contract from when he started like 20 years ago... So make sure you bet on him!

I'm not sure. His name is Bennett Collett but he may not be in that circle. He has to be a billionaire or, at least, at multi millionaire. He turned down $100 mill. for one of his casinos in Las Vegas.

If we are talking about the same guy, he does have a powder blue Rolls Royce + a black limo. The funny thing is that he rarely drives them-He rents automobiles and drives them on a daily basis....:confused:

I fertilize Mike Tirico's yard....he's an announcer for ESPN/ABC Probably at the Masters right now.

I used to do Tommy Hears lawn and Emanuel Steward of boxing fame and Duke Fakir of The Four Tops and when I worked at TGCL we did Aretha Franklins place.

Man, that's a small world. Yea, he's all over the place. His main residency is in Kentucky. I'll tell you how we're related-He married my second cousin and they were on again, off again for most of their life. His mother-in-law and my grandfather were brother and sister. I ran into him at the Chic-Fil-A in Loganville a few months ago-Hadn't seen him in years. He bought the mansion from Burt along with 200 acres and developed the subdivision-Tara Club Estates. He has his hand in everything. He was actually at my wedding reception.

Thats amazing you guys both know him. I cant see how one guy can juggle so many different companies, but I guess its all in the management , and hiring good people.

I wouldn't even want to. It would my luck paparazzi would snap pics of me taking a leak behind a tree and post them on the web or something. My city doesn't have any celebs but many of them own property around the state but they have full time employees for maintaining things. David Lettermans ranch is about 30 minutes from me and he has atleast 3-5 year round workers. Most the wealthy people here aren't celebs though. Many around here have $10 million dollar ranches but nobody has ever heard of them. Mostly just people who invested correctly and came out on top.

Whats all the buzz with miley cirus, shes 17 and uguly as all get out. I mean common lets be realistic here, Id rather be doing the women trying to crack thier way into the bizz, then you allready have the upper hand if they make it big. Not getting snubbed by the snotty rich ones.
